We had a fabulous time on this tour - it was one of the highlights of our trip to New York.

We had originally intended to go on the Greenwich tour but ended up booking this one as the Greenwich one was booked out.

We were so glad that we did, as we probably never would have visited this area of New York otherwise.

We loved the area, loved the food, and LOVED our tour guide Bob. He really made the tour special.

A great day - and lots and lots of beautiful food!

The guide (Cindy) was terrific and told us lots about the area. The food was amazing from all the stops and more than we expected. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone.

This was arguably the highlight of our short break in New York. Our guide, Bob, gave a very knowledgeable and witty tour and that coupled with the food samples within Chelsea Market and elsewhere made it all wothwhile and great value for money. I cannot recommend it highly enough and will be looking to do one of the other tours when we return to New York in the future.

I really enjoyed the tour guide's enthusiasm and genuine knowledge of the area. It was really insightful and she answered every question really thoughtfully. We got a great insight into this emerging precinct and a feel for the rapid changes it has undergone in the past decade or so.

A nice slice of NYC's foodie west side.

Overall I really enjoyed it, but if you're looking for some constructive critcism, here goes...

The sequence of the places visited and the food eaten could have been better thought through (starting with a sweet and ending with a main course didn't work for me). Also, I didn't really like visiting restaurants only to receive a sale's pitch (and no food). I also expected to receive a wine tasting given that we visited a wine cellar.

All in all it was worthwhile, but not quite as good as I'd expected.

Very informative, good food, great guide (Cindy).

We also got to see the High Line which we were going to do as a seperate trip, so two tours for the price of one!

what a great experience

fantastic experience. Totally recommend it to anyone travelling through NY. I was here on business so by myself in the city but felt very included and really enjoyed the company. I think people should do this tour on their first day as the tour leader gives such insider knowledge about the area.

Definite highlight of our visit to NYC!

The itinerary and guide were excellent. It was a great introduction to a part of New York that has so much history - both disreputable and reputable! Daryl was an excellent guide - his voice projected effectively even in the buzz and din of the Market, the anecdotes were great and there was a good connection with the group. Food tastings were good, although I would have preferred 1 or 2 more savoury choices. We are ready to sign up for another tour with Foods of New York next time we visit from Singapore!
